Cartoon Brew has posted test footage from a planned Isao Takahata/Hayao Miyazaki American/Japanese joint production of Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland that sadly never happened. They also tell us
Here’s the vid. Damn shame. This would have been amazing. More after the break.
This is the short film, from 1911, entitled “Winsor McCay, the Famous Cartoonist of the N.Y. Herald and His Moving Comics,” in which he apparently has an idea to making his comic characters move, and undertakes the effort to do so within a month’s time. Shows the end result as well.
